With the start of the 2018 college football season underway, one team that is hopeful about turning their less than mediocre year around is the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. While the team has a few areas of concern for the season, coach Paul Johnson is optimistic about getting the best out of his squad and turning this into a winning season. One of the motivating factors that should help Georgia Tech to dig deep for success this season is their No. 42 ranking in athlon's top 130. While that ranking could be worse, there is plenty of room to improve and move higher up the ladder this season. A high point this year is that the majority of their offensive line is returning. However, there are a couple of players battling for a position on that offensive line. With Andrew Marshall recovering from a leg injury, the door is open for Brad Morgan to step into the right tackle position if Marshall is not 100% healthy any time soon.

The hiring of the new defensive coach, Nate Woody has brought with it a new defensive scheme that the Yellow Jackets feel will benefit their team significantly. They will be moving from the 4-2-5 defensive lineup to the 3-4 in hopes of utilizing their smaller and quicker lineup. Two areas of concern for Georgia Tech are the backup quarterback and the receiver positions. While the starting quarterback is set, there is always a chance of an injury. The options for the backup quarterback at the current time is sophomore, Lucas Johnson and Tobias Oliver who was a redshirt last year. As far as the receiver position, there will be no primary receiver since losing their outstanding wideout in the NFL draft last season. The position will be played by committee and the player who is in the best position to catch the pass will receive the ball.
